UNC vs. Maryland: Beyond the Box

After UNC beat N.C. State back at the end of January, I opened that BTB with the following:

…after losing 3 games in November, the Heels have now gone two straight months with only 1 loss.  Is it too early to start thinking about March?  Absolutely, but should the Heels make their way through February [...]

Happy 80th Birthday, Dean Smith

Happy 80th birthday to the legend that is University of North Carolina basketball, Dean Edwards Smith, and a classy move by Maryland’s Gary Williams to mention it during last night’s post-game.

As time passes, Smith has lost or will lose a number of his individual records, but his impact on the college game endures. Whether [...]

UNC 87, Maryland 76

As I watched this game, this sequence from the classic movie Bull Durham kept playing in my mind:

UNC-Maryland Game Thread

This has been making the round on the internet. If they actually made this, you know darn well you’d buy one. If UNC has any designs on winning the ACC regular season, I think Harrison Barnes going into Black Falcon mode from tip to final horn might go a long way towards getting the Heels [...]

ACC Satuday Open Thread

Some ACC action going on and a big one tonight at 9 PM on ESPN between #1 Duke and Virginia Tech in Blacksburg. Any hope UNC has of winning the ACC regular season outright can most simply be broken down into two parts.

1. Virginia Tech beats Duke

2. UNC beats Maryland, FSU and Duke

Some Humor For Your Friday

UNC vs. NCSU: Beyond the Box

Ah, finally some numbers that are more (but still not entirely) pleasing to work with!  We will get to that in a moment, but first there are a couple of important things that last night’s win provided that go beyond just a prettier looking boxscore.  First, Carolina clinched a winning record on the road in [...]

UNC 75 NCSU 63

So if you take the first half at Duke and the second half of this one you get great basketball right?

UNC-NCSU Game Thread

This just in…John Henson is a complete freak of nature.

This game is being broadcast in China. Why? I have no earthly idea. I do know exposing the Chinese to NC State basketball cannot possibly be a good idea.
